Kellsey was born and raised in Berks County. She moved to Philadelphia to attend La Salle University and hasn’t left since. She currently lives in Point Breeze with her fiancé, but have called many Philly neighborhoods home over the years. 

Shortly after graduating college, she joined the team at Vault Communications where she currently works as an Account Manager. Kellsey’s work is varied, challenging, and exciting, and she is blessed with supportive co-workers who make the work even more fun. 

Kellsey is currently the VP of Membership for PPRA, and she also sits on the board for Sisters Returning Home and the Junior Board for Gesu School. In her free time, she enjoys reading, gardening, discovering new restaurants, and — during non-COVID times — attending concerts, comedy shows, and live theater.

PPRA: Who are your clients and/or what are you working on right now?

KT: My clients include a med tech company that makes life-saving technology to improve women’s health; a materials solutions company that produces the plastics, synthetic rubbers and latex binders within many of the materials we interact with on a daily basis; and a company that designs the hardware and software required to measure, formulate, and manage color.  

PPRA: What is your favorite part of your job?

KT: I love writing, so bylines, case studies, and blog posts are some of my favorite projects to work on. One of my favorite projects to date has been developing a client’s annual Sustainability Report. 

PPRA: What one piece of advice would you give to your fellow PR pros?

KT: I once received an excellent piece of advice to archive my accomplishments throughout my career. I recommend an email folder for saving everything from client compliments and performance reviews to media wins and project examples. This informal digital portfolio has served as a wonderful repository that I can easily reference, whenever necessary. You never know when this may come in handy! 

PPRA: What book or movie could you read or watch again and again?

KT: I adore reading, but will rarely reread a book. Some of my favorites to recommend include “All the Light We Cannot See,” “A Man Called Ove,” and “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” 

PPRA: What’s your favorite spot in Philly?

KT: The steps of the Art Museum at night. It’s a great view of the city. 

PPRA: If you weren’t in PR, what profession do you see yourself in and why?

KT: I always wanted to write for a living, so I likely would have become a journalist if I wasn’t in PR. 

PPRA: Favorite Philly Food?

KT: Currently, it’s the bacon, pork roll and cheese on an everything seasoned soft pretzel from Rowhome Coffee. This is a recent find for me, and it’s heavenly. Highly recommend checking it out!
